13 Weeks Check-in - Week 9
I am amazed at how fast the time has flown by! I'm noodling on ideas for my next 13-weeks, which I've already decided I will do. (Anybody else wanna play?) Maybe not a quilt a week again - those bindings are weighing heavy on my brain!
Speaking of weighing ......... yes, another pound is gone. Yes another quilt is made. No I did not try a new recipe this week, although 1 tweaked 2 old ones - does that count? One was the beer bread recipe which was, again, a failure. That recipe is just not quite right and has been tossed.
Here's the weekly quilt:
(Whoops - forgot to crop.) OK I learned a lesson from this quilt - I learned that I don't like the drastic contrast of the sashings to the coins. Doesn't it kinda look like the fabrics are in jail? This quilt will most likely be donated to a senior's home since it's lap size. Great for those that are wheelchair bound and tend to get cold. Or maybe to a kid's place - it's a good size for a kid, too. Any suggestions? My stack of quilts to donate is growing!!
When I headed out for my walk this morning, it was totally overcast which made me consider leaving the sunglasses at home. Thankfully I did not! By the time I was on the second half of the walk the sun was bearing down & had burned off most of the overcast-ness. There sure were a lot of people walking this morning! Twice as many as I usually see on my walks.
Well those bindings are yelling at me so I guess I better go tend to them. Thanks for stopping by!!
